This problem has been happening for a long time. I've tried suggestions everywhere I've seen, my latest was from this site, suggesting to go into about:config > dom.storage.next_gen and toggle setttings to 'False', but nothing changed. Is there a fix or would it be better to use a different web browser?

I use ad-blocking addons AdBlocker Ultimate, UBlock Origin and Element Blocker. Works OK and I usually block everything that bothers me -- except for websites using the same template as The Federalist Papers (Image below). I can block the first few elements that make up the frame but you can see from the posted image that's as far as I get. The frame will go black, but that;s as far as I get and the frame always reverts to what you see in the posted image. That frame loading is a resource hog and I would like to kill it. It just won't go away ! Have tried all the blocking options -- "Block similar elements" etc, but zero luck. The frames appear to use unique identifiers that are different for every page load. On other sites I have defeated similar strategies by "Block similar elements", but not on The Federalist Papers. I think it is important we solve this before other sites catch onto it. Ideas ?

Браузер скачивает с маленькой скоростью (хотя интернет хороший) и часто прерывается на половине пути. Ладно прерывается, но не позволяет возобновить загрузку, мол "файл не найден" или просто не хочет. Ещё тормозит время от времени. Решайте проблему.

Unexpected behavior with "jump to end of word" keyboard shortcut on macOS

I often use the "Option+Left/Right Arrow" keyboard shortcut to navigate through text.

In Chrome and other programs, this works how I would expect it: using this site, the first press of the right arrow will move the cursors after "https" and before the ":" character. A second will move it to the end of "support" before the "." character.

However, Firefox will jump to between the "//" characters" and "support" on the first press, and will jump over the period after "support," before the word "mozilla."

This applies to the address bar, but also anywhere text is present, such as a form text area.

Strangely, moving the other direction does not skip past punctuation.

The behavior exhibited does not match that of the native operating system (moving to the end of a word, excluding punctuation) so I find it somewhat jarring. Is this something that could potentially be changed by a config and/or fixed at the application level?

Thanks.

System suddenly changed IE to default browser for Thunderbird messages. Going through Settings, Defaults, Firefox is not an option, the icon is not there. The main issue is Thunderbird now opens messages in IE all of a sudden instead of Firefox. In Firefox Options, I click on set default and it comes up with IE or search store for an app. I'd be grateful for any help.

Desktop firefox shows mobile view of google and asana (+others) when browsing, but shows desktop view on private browsing.

Hi all, I am experiencing an issue where some site (such as google and asana) think I am on my phone. Other sites do not do this, but several that i use regularly do. I tried troubleshooting, and i noticed that when i use a private browser, google and asana look good on desktop, so that is why i think this is a firefox issue. Ive tried searching google and the knowledge base but all the searches think I WANT to view the mobile view on desktop (to check responsive design most likely), but I actually want to STOP seeing the mobile view on desktop.

NOTE - this seemed to happen right after I selected an ad to be hidden using the AdBlock extension on an article i was reading. i dont know if this is relevant or not, but i deleted the app anyway. This did not fix the issue though.

Anyone seen this issue before?

I have various login usernames and passwords for various websites. Firefox (version 72.0.1) seems to remember the usernames and passwords ok, so I must have some settings right. But it won't log into those websites automatically when I click on a bookmark. The screen opens with the fields filled in, but I have to click through each login screen until I eventually reach the web site's home page. Under internet explorer the website home page would just open as soon as I clicked the bookmark link in my favorites When I go to about:config and search signon, then signon.rememberSignons is set to "true" signon.autofillForms is also set to "true"

Hey folks, I just installed Firefox last week and really want it to work for me (ditching Chrome...). BUT, 2 things are happening and really testing my patience: 1. it logs me out of my account every time I x out the Firefox window or if my Mac goes to sleep (so every morning I come back I'm logged out) 2. even after I log in, it restores my bookmarks but not my preferences (so bookmarks toolbar doesn't show up, passwords that I saved don't auto-fill, etc.)

Basic info: I run HighSierra 10.13.4 I have tried the "resfresh firefox" thing I have my account syncing with my iphone The only extensions I have is "save to feedly board". I did have clockify installed but it keeps getting ditched again, so I gave up for now.

Any suggestions for how to fix this? (I am not a mac pro - please explain so I little kid could understand it too ;)

Thanks lots, Anne
